The purpose of these college football threads and articles are to help those who don't know a ton about the sport to stay informed throughout the year up until draft time. There are several people on this site, and others from other SBNation sites, that love to talk about college football. If you consider youself not interested, or not understanding why it's being discussed on a Niners related website then there are plenty of other great articles and fanposts on the site to focus on relative to the 49ers.
So far there hasn't been a shortage in upsets, exciting games, and of course blowouts. At a quick glance at this weeks schedule, it seems as though we could be in for quite a few more blowouts as far as the top 25 teams games are concerned.

They almost pulled off the upset. After that Case Keenum and the rest of the Houston Cougars Team put a whoopin' on UTEP.

Whether or not he deserves to be is another topic.

All of the top 10 teams dominated as expected but someunranked teams made their way in to the top 25. All of the top 25 teams should have it easy for the most part but it wouldn't completly shock me to see one of them fall. Afterall, it is college football.
